1. Spicy Chick’n Enchiladas
Enchiladas are the mother madre of Mexican food. Let’s break it down: warm tortillas stuffed with yumminess, covered with spicy sauce, and topped with vegan cheese AND guac? Yep, pretty bomb. Try these vegan chick’n enchiladas and transport your taste buds across the border!
2. Fight-Worthy Nachos!
Nachos make the best appetizer—crunchy, spicy, gooey, and delicious! Plus, you can’t really mess them up. Just pile on the toppings and let the nacho gods do their thing. Oh, remember that it’s all fun and games until you and your friends get down to the last tortilla chip—that’s when sh*t gets real and friendships are tested! Still worth the risk!
3. Hangover-Helper Scramble
Not a morning person? Well, this soyrizo tofu scramble is about to make you one! Every spoonful is filled with spicy goodness. WARNING: You’ll never look at cereal the same way again!
4. HOT Vegan Tamales!
Tamales are one of the most fun things to eat! The name comes from the Nahuatl word “tamalli,” which means “wrapped” in English, and that’s exactly what they are! Eating tamales is like unwrapping little flavorful gifts one after the other (sometimes too many to count—oops!) Try our roasted chili and corn tamales, or improvise with your own fave ingredients!
